In January 1998 the public hearing process under the Agricultural Land Commission Act was used for the first time in the case of the Six Mile Ranch resort proposal near Kamloops. Commissioner David Perry was appointed by Order in Council to conduct hearings and make recommendations to Cabinet on the disposition of applications to the Agricultural Land Commission (ALC), involving a number of changes to the status of Six Mile Ranch land within the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR). The Perry Commission recommended that Cabinet approve the Six Mile Ranch golf course and destination resort proposal.
